System Health region

The region you see in the top left corner of your dashboard dispays the overall health of your systems.  There's a couple of hundred health checks that we've developed that are run against your configurations, and the front-page view of the region shows your score: how many violations of those health checks have been found across your systems, and what severity they're at.  You can also show the overall health results by score, which is calculated based on the number of violations and the severity.  Drilling into the region shows you the details of the violations -- which checks were violated, which targets were in violation, etc.  And of course, it gives recommendations for remediating those problems.  
 
What do you think -- are we showing the right balance of summary information on the front dashboard page, in relation to the detail inside?  Are we giving the right details that you need to know about in order to be satisfied that you're doing the right think with regard to keeping your systems in tip-top health?

Comments:

I would think that you could add more information details in dashboard area, in particular the inventory and usage area.

What additional information would you like to see?

I don't consider the actual number of boxes important (inventory). Health details related to system health warnings especially critical are more important, I can view the number of boxes easily under configurations. There is also an error message when viewing Health details, which I assume is related to my longer beta CSI number. I haven't added it back in yet. HttpConsumer.defaultOnError IO Error Error #2032

I think the dashboard is great as it is. One suggestion would be customizable links or tabs that I could add, for example if I wanted a link directly from the CSM dashboard to my Grid Control home page? Something along those lines.

Why does the 'Total' in Healthcheck not match with the other numbers. The Critical, Warning and Informational numbers do not add up to the total.

Sharon, the answer to your question is that the total covers *all* health checks, including those that passed successfully.

This is still a quarter behind on CPU's. It flags the one instance I put the Q4 CPU on, and then for which I updated/uploaded the OCM config, as missing the Q3 CPU (for OAS 10.1.2.x) - duhhh - of course - each OAS CPU removes the previous CPU. Also, the other 2 servers I uploaded info for from before I applied the Q4 CPU (and after the Q3 CPU), show no issues, but in fact should show as not having the Q4 CPU. "Fat, DUMB, happy"... Rory
